We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Spry Funeral Home & Crematory
Doug Miller passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home on Tuesday. He courageously fought a nearly two-year battle with cancer. Doug was born in Huntsville, graduated from Madison Academy in 1974, and began his career with the Post Office in 1977 at the Ryland Post Office where he was the Postmaster relief. He then transferred to Huntsville as a clerk. During his career he was a clerk, supervisor, Postmaster of Scottsboro, had numerous details to other offices, and after 32 years of service, he retired in 2009 as the Plant Manager of the Huntsville Mail Processing Facility. After retirement, he and his family moved to Brownsboro and he enjoyed life, playing and writing music, and working in their vegetable garden.
Doug was also a musician and songwriter. He loved playing guitar and singing, but writing was his passion. He played in many places around the Huntsville area, playing all types of music. He was also known to bring his guitar to work and play for his employees if they had to work on a holiday.
He is preceded in death by his parents Malcolm Wayne Miller and Mary Frances Miller (Boyett). He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Susan Miller (Houston), sister Marie Bittle of Brownsboro, Brother Tommy Miller (Lisa) of Toney, sister-in-law Karen McLendon of Brownsboro, sons Chris Foster of Brownsboro and Tommy Miller of Huntsville, grandchildren Grace Foster, Houston Foster, and Cooper Foster, all of Brownsboro, and many nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Doug’s nurse Natalie, from Caring For Life Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Jude.
Doug’s wishes were to be cremated and have a visitation only, with no memorial service.
Visitation will be Saturday, June 11th from 3-5 P.M. at Spry Funeral Home
